Burt Beusch has years of business experience, and passion for Langley

Editor,

Most of us, the ones not lucky enough to be born and raised here, come with a background of varied life experiences. But we have one thing in common — we came to this island because we love it. We made a conscious decision to live here and become part of this community. I’m one of those people. My late husband, Don, was one of those people. And Burt Beusch, and his wife Becki, are those people.

As a neighbor, I can attest to the fact that Burt asks questions — a lot of questions! And he actively listens to those answers. He cares what others have to say, why they feel what they feel and think what they think. As a council member, he has the time and energy it takes to become a fully informed and active member. He has demonstrated his enthusiasm for and commitment to the job of council member. He works tirelessly to learn what his constituents think and he evaluates the many diverse points of view found in our community. He represents us with intelligence, honesty, and integrity. His only agenda is to balance what is best for everyone in Langley now and in the future.

Burt has shown a strong personal commitment to maintaining and improving our quality of life. He has become a familiar face at informational meetings and an enthusiastic volunteer for our community. He appreciates the beauty and joy of living in Langley as well as the need for a vibrant local economy. He combines years of business experience with a passion for our city and to serve. I hope you will join me in supporting Burt Beusch for Langley City Council.
